I am excited to share with you some news regarding Better World Books’ support of “Green for All”. See this from Brad Weirich, Employee Development Manager, who will be involved with this effort going forward (representing Better World Books):
Green for All, a new campaign focused on bringing “green collar” jobs to urban areas, launched on Friday, September 26th, at the Clinton Global Initiative. The group, created by Van Jones, Co-Founder of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, seeks to capitalize on the exploding green economy while ensuring that the coming green economic wave impacts on more than one level.
The Green for All campaign is a bold effort to harness the growing power of the green economic revolution to fight the war on poverty. By securing job training for 250,000 workers from urban communities for the emerging green job market, the program will provide new avenues of opportunity for those who have traditionally been left behind by the nation’s economic growth.
Green for All was launched with the support of over 200 businesses and organizations, including Better World Books.
